Moscow. April 10. INTERFAX.RU — IN connection with the aggravation of the situation around Syria, the correspondent of “Interfax” Vyacheslav Terekhov turned to a former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev with a request to comment on the events.
— The current situation some have compared with the Caribbean crisis in 1961. Do you agree with this assessment?
— I hope that this still will not happen. But the anxiety is huge. This was not long ago, and I am very disappointed with the behavior of the current leaders. There is inability to engage in dialogue, to use diplomatic mechanisms. World politics turned into an exchange of recriminations, sanctions and even military strikes.
